Help another amazing wetland

The Danube Delta. Birdlife International followers will have received dire news concerning the planned destruction of a Ramsar Site floodplain and candidate Biosphere reserve on the Croatian – Serbian border. Home to White-tailed Eagles, Black Terns, Black Storks and much much more, this will be a very serious loss if canalisation of this stretch of the River Danube is sanctioned as feared. The more names we can add to this petition the better – and by the end of 21 March at the latest CLICK HERE Thank you.

Castle Water/Harbour Farm

A dozen Sand Martin and a Black Redstart made a nice addition to the usual suspects at the viewpoint this morning. Later around mid morning on Harbour Farm 9 Ruff, 3 Black-tailed Godwit and 4 Goldeneye (1 drake) were present on the pit nearest the barns, and 2 Wheatear were feeding on the short grassy areas nearby.
